Jeffrey A. Fromm is a Partner in the firm since 2014. Jeff has a broad range of legal and business experience – almost 30 years as a firm lawyer, general counsel, operating executive, equity investor, entrepreneur and board member. With that background as well as an NYU J.D. and Columbia M.B.A., Jeff offers a rare blend of business and strategic experience to his clients.
Jeff represents privately held companies at all stages, often collaborating with the executive team as “outside general counsel”. His companies practice includes equity financings, joint ventures, strategic licensing transactions, mergers & acquisitions, executive employment and compensation arrangements, and corporate governance matters. He also represents venture capital and private equity investors in their acquisition and disposition of portfolio company investments, as well as in fund formation and governance matters.
Jeff’s clients includes corporations (both ‘C’ and ‘S’), limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited partnerships (LPs). Also, Jeff is an early proponent of Delaware public benefit corporations and “certified B corps”. In addition, due to the strong relationships that Jeff builds with CXO-level executives, he is frequently asked to represent those executives in their own employment, compensation and equity arrangements.
As part of his broad corporate and transactional practice, Jeff has substantial experience in four particular areas:
Before joining VLP, Jeff practiced at Dorsey & Whitney LLP, where he was a partner and co-head of the firm’s NY Corporate Group. He started his legal practice at O’Sullivan Graev & Karabell (now O’Melveny & Myers).
